Jos Survivors Leave Area of Christmas Eve Bomb Attacks


The city of Jos, Nigeria is still in flames and under a 24-hour curfew, but indigenous missionaries are slowing releasing their stories of the deadly bombings. More than 80 people have died in the Christmas Eve bombings and ensuing fighting. One missionary told Christian Aid Mission Africa Director Rae Burnett that thousands of internally displaced people are on the move following the violence. Burnett released parts of an email report from Gabriel Barau, the executive director of Missionary Crusaders Ministries, who was in Jos for a Christmas field visit when the attacks began. “Right now, my family and I are still trapped on the outskirts of Jos where Muslim fanatics have set the city on fire once again,” he wrote Tuesday. The violence began on Christmas Eve when he says seven terrorist bombs were planted in two churches and a market area within Jos City, Plateau State. All exploded successfully, killing many victims.
